Freaks Week: College football's best 'Freak' at each position for 2014
JUL 08, 2014 2:00p ET
We have a few new elements wrapped around the Freaks list as part of FOX Sports' Freaks Week.
On Monday, we released the Top 20 Freaks in college football.
Today, we unveil the All-Freak Team.
Running back: Todd Gurley, Georgia -- One of the best blends of great size and track speed in the SEC since the days of Herschel and Bo.
Wide receiver: Devon Allen, Oregon -- The Ducks' one area of concern on offense is at wideout, but there is no question about the speed they have at the position when you have an NCAA hurdles champ in the mix.
Tight end: O.J. Howard, Alabama -- The Tide has to break in a new QB, but they’re loaded with proven studs at WR and RB, and watch out for this 6-foot-6, 240-pound sophomore, who has clocked some sub 4.5 40s and averaged more than 19 yards a catch in his freshman season.
Offensive line: Kyle Friend, Temple -- A former prep wrestling star is the anchor of the Owls' offense and will turn heads at the NFL Combine down the road.
Defensive line: Bud Dupree, Kentucky -- UK strength coach Erik Korem calls the 267-pounder with the 40.5-inch vertical the "most versatile athlete" he's ever coached, which is lofty praise when you consider than he just came from working at FSU a year-and-a-half ago.
Defensive line: Nate Terhune, Kent State -- His 4.33 pro-agility time only hints at some of the amazing genes this kid has.
Defensive back: Ronald Darby, Florida State -- The 'Noles could stock this entire backfield with some of the studs they have. The junior from Maryland, a former ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year, is a former high school sprint champ who has competed all over the world and clocked a 21.05 200-meter time.
Defensive back: P.J. Williams, Florida State -- I always try to steer clear of having more than one player from the same program on the Freaks list, but the 'Noles are so loaded at this position, and Williams is such a special talent, we had to have two 'Noles here. Korem, the old FSU strength coach, used the word "spectacular" when describing the 195-pounder's athleticism.
Defensive back: Artie Burns, Miami -- Not long ago Burns, an imposing 6-foot, 199-pound corner, broke a 38-year-old American junior record in the 60-meter hurdles, clocking a 7.68.
Defensive back: Sheroid Evans, Texas -- A decorated national-caliber track star, Evans ran the nation's fastest 200-meter time (20.82) in 2010 back in his high school days.
